Scar Surrounded

More Money Than Brains

Hearkening back to my comments on eBay last week, I've spent the past week getting outbid right and left on all kinds of stuff. While I'm annoyed that there are so many people willing to spend so much money on stuff that I'd like to get myself for cheaper, the ones who really baffle me are the people who bid stuff way up past the price it would cost to just buy it new from the manufacturer's website.

This is doubly true of Warhammer/LotR miniatures, which already cost 150%-200% of the industry average as it is!

WTF, mate?

"You know," said Greg, "the more I listen to this song, the more convinced I am that they shouldn't have included that sample from You Only Live Twice in it."

"Why?" said Brigid. "You Only Live Twice is a cool enough song."

"Well yes, that's just the problem," Greg replied. "Every time I hear the sample, all it does it bring home to me yet again how much better a song You Only Live Twice is than this one. If I'm going to hear clips from it anyway, then why not just go listen to that, instead?"

"Sort of the pop-music equivalent of groveling and chanting 'we are not worthy', is that it?"

"Exactly so," said Greg, and clicked off the radio.

Yerf Pick of the Day

Didn't have any for the past few days, 'cause there wasn't that much new content being uploaded. But there's a bunch of new stuff today, so you get some bonus picks!

One of THOSE Mornings by Mary Lai
Wow, that was me all over on Monday. Great touch of humor without being too over-the-top. :)

Kimono Kitten by Shelly Rodriguez
D'Aww! This one belongs on splodefromcute. I particularly like the eyes, and the way the backdrop captures the feel (although it looks more Chinese than Japanese, to my admittedly untutored eye).

Hedgie by Brian Yee
Brian Yee does great expressions and has a very appealing toony style. This particular piece creates a great sense of character. "Before I kill you Mr. Bond..."

I'm the Urban Spaceman

I'm the urban spaceman, honey
I've got speed
I've got everything I need
I'm the urban spaceman baby, I can fly
I'm a supersonic guy

I don't need pleasure
I don't feel pain
If you were to knock me down
I'd get back up again

I'm the urban spaceman, baby
I'm making out
I'm all about

I wake up every morning
with a smile upon my face
My natural exuberance
spills out all over the place

I'm the urban spaceman
I'm intelligent and clean
Know what I mean?

I'm the urban spaceman
as a lover second to none
It's a lot of fun

I never let my friends down
I've never made a boob
I'm a glossy magazine
an advert in the tube
I'm the urban spaceman babe, but
here comes the twist
I don't exist
